TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2016 /CNW/ -- COMPAREX Canada announces new cloud managed services offering, Unified Cloud Management (UCM), to support customers in Microsoft Azure. From initial migrations to extensive support options, UCM is focused on driving value and utility in the cloud.
Cloud technology has fundamentally transformed the ways that software, applications and data are managed, promoting more strategic use than ever before. However, many organizations over-spend on cloud consumption because of the difficulty and lack of resources required to closely monitor their utilization. Unified Cloud Management for Azure, COMPAREX Canada's newest services program, offers extensive support, in-depth reporting and environment monitoring, and architecture and deployment reviews.
"The industry trend toward digital transformation makes Azure a strategic journey for many organizations," says Erik Moll, Director of Digital Transformation at COMPAREX Canada. "Our Advanced Support program for Azure helps those companies methodically plan and execute within their Azure environments, with annual cloud assessments that look at workloads, profitability, virtualization and ways to right-size their investment."
COMPAREX Canada offers two Azure support tiers for customers, depending on their needs and level of involvement in managing their cloud environments. Standard Support includes access to COMPAREX Canada's 24x7 bilingual North American-based help desk. Advanced Support takes it a step further. In addition to the Standard on-demand, unlimited support, Advanced Support also includes dedicated technical account management, IT admin training, access to proprietary monitoring and reporting tools that provide insight into Azure consumption and spend, and more.
"As the fastest-growing cloud platform, Azure represents a significant opportunity for organizations to lower their total cost of ownership and operate more efficiently," says Jason Mackay, General Manager of COMPAREX Canada. "However, while it's easy to get started in Azure, it's also easy to get lost. Our support programs are designed to offload the burden of management while providing key insights and optimization guidance to drive value for your team."
As organizations continue to struggle with maximizing their return on Azure and implementing an effective consumption monitoring strategy, having the right support structure in place is critical to success in the cloud. With COMPAREX Canada's leading support programs, IT departments no longer have to "do it all" and can focus instead on driving revenue in their cloud investments.
